RAUH-Welt Begriff (also known as RWB) is a one man brand. The creation of a Japanese master technician named Akira Nakai.
Nakai-san formed RWB back in 1999 when he turned his passion for air cooled Porsche’s into a business idea. He had envisioned a more radical and extreme styling for the Porsche 930, 964 and 993 911’s and eventually translated his thoughts into a the various body kits for the classic Porsche’s that we see all over the internet today.
It seems wherever you look, you see a new RWB car popping up in a new country. Unbelievably, every car that holds the RWB name (now over 300) was built by Nakai-san himself. In the past, if someone outside of Japan wanted to have a RWB Porsche, they had to ship their car to Nakai-san’s little shop in Chiba, Japan. Nowadays, RWB has established many official dealers across the world including Thailand, USA, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, Europe, Canada and China. Their newest branch to open is our very own RWB Hong Kong.
For anyone that has been to his shop in Japan, you feel like you’ve time warped into a museum. The garage is full of souvenirs and decorative fixtures that Nakai-san has collected over his many years of travel around the world. The shop is a like any neighborhood garage. A little “rough” around the edges seeing as Nakai-san is only in Japan for a few days every month. The rest of the time, he is flying around the world building RAUH-Welt Begriff cars for international customers.
